As  a mother, I sometimes become overwhelmed by the tug of war life I have to come to know. I often have found it mind boggling the types of complaints men make about raising children. They speak of it as if it so easy or to frustrating. A father placing a child in front of TV or shoving a electronic device in their face in order to keep them occupied until mommy comes home, is quite the job. A woman’s, rather a mother’s, spiritual dependency gives her the strength to endure the triumphs that comes with raising children in today’s society. The older the children get, the more we have to contend against. As a mother, I seek to nurture them while they are babies, train them while they are in grade school, and groom them while they are in high school.
